The Dunkirk Fredonia Lions Club recently hosted Kids at Promise representatives and board members to their monthly meeting to learn more about the Kids at Promise youth development program and their goal to help support young people from our local community. The program is currently hosted at 324 Townsend St., Dunkirk.
Members of the Dunkirk Fredonia Lions club then filled and presented more than 50 Christmas gift bags for children participating in the Kids at Promise program.
The bags contained candy, games, treats, socks, activity books and pencils, a Christmas card and more. In addition, the group received a large pile of new winter coats, several dozen socks and several hats, mittens and scarves.
President Judith Cole said: âThe motto of the Lions Club is: We Serve. It is never more rewarding than serving children at Christmas. We hope these bags will brighten up the children’s day and the clothes will help those who need more warmth this year.
The club looks forward to continuing its partnership with the Kids at Promise program in the future.
The Dunkirk Fredonia Lions Club is always open to potential members with a heart for community service.
